Emergency exit lights are required for highlighting the escape routes in the event of a power failure. Abbot Fire Group are specialists in emergency light installation and emergency lighting maintenance. There are two types of emergency exit lighting: maintained and non-maintained. Emergency lighting is a legal requirement, and is required to meet BS5266-1. It covers different areas within your building.
Maintained lighting is the type of lighting which remains on permanently. It has dual purpose as standard lighting, but will still provide illumination in the event of a power failure. Generally used in public places this emergency lighting is suitable for shopping centres, theatres, and cinemas.
This emergency exit lighting is the type of lighting that operates when there is a power failure. It is linked to a building’s light circuits and reacts to any power failure by ensuring emergency exit routes are illuminated.
